Nice easy trail for a quick ride

I do the Perimeter Trail on a somewhat regular basis and really enjoy the different areas you go through.

I would rate this trail between easy and moderate, but on the easier side. Its nice and wide most of the way and not nearly as rocky and rooty as other trails. I started at the Lake picnic area, took Blue Dome to Red Perimeter and stayed on that all the way back to the car. Just over four miles took less than an hr running with the dog. Plenty of little creaks for pups to drink from/play in. There were other people on the trail, but not enough to call it crowed by any means. I will be back and probably run it twice without the dog.

Easy 4.5 miles fun ride!

Awesome trails, made our pup happy! Lots of Horses.

Perimeter trails are often not the most scenic or rewarding because you're basically hiking the outer boundaries of the park (w/ occasional views of nearby houses, roads, power lines, etc). Bowie is one of the nicest and most unspoiled parks in middle Tennessee. The park's perimeter trail, although really nice, is my least favorite, but there are so many adjoining "interior" trails that you can incorporate them into the perimeter route for a much more scenic tour.

This is an easy trail for beginners or families. Trail is wide and not a lot of cross trails. Only trail markings are at the beginning and the few cross trails. Nice quiet area that has a few houses and farms around it.

This is an easy hike for the entire family ( & fur babies). This is a good trail for running and an afternoon stroll with the family. I wouldn't rate this as moderate but a good weekend trail to visit with others.

The trail itself is great for hiking and running. I try to hike the premier trail 2 times a week. If you start from the parking area by Shelter 1 and enter the trail at shelter 2 you will have 2 very significant inclines. At the 2.5 mile mark just past the creek crossing you will start a 3/4 incline in elevation a few places steep mostly just long. Then at the end of the trail about 100 yards very steep to the top. Fast hiking, trail is an old fire road.

Trail is in great shape (except for the occasional horse piles) and just beautiful. Lots of big fish (bass and panfish) in the lakes including what looked like a monster goldfish in Upper Lake. We'll be back again to see if we can tackle the perimeter trail.

Easy trail. Saw 15 people, 3 horses, 2 dogs, 1 deer, about 40 cows, 3 turtles, and a couple dozen geese. If you want an easy trail, this is it.
